12-day Trans Bhutan Trail walk raises USD 528,888 for the Choki Traditional Art School

The Trans Bhutan Trail, a popular ancient route, has become a hub for adventurers and trekkers since its opening last year. Many have walked the trail for recreation and to immerse themselves in the stunning natural beauty of Bhutan. But for a group of tourists, this journey holds a deeper meaning. Teaming up with the staff and alumni of the Choki Traditional Art School in Thimphu, a group of tourists walked the Trans Bhutan Trail to raise funds for the school. Their aim is to support the school’s mission of providing free education, food, and lodging to its students.

Yesterday, the group successfully reached Trongsa, marking the end of their 12-day journey from Thimphu.

The walk was initiated by the staff of the Choki Traditional Art School, who were joined by their friends from Europe.

The journey has been a truly enriching experience for the entire team, particularly for the tourists who joined the walk.

They are eager to share their incredible adventure and inspire their friends and families back home.

“We have been able to admire the beauty of Bhutan’s rich culture. I think that Trans Bhutan Trail is the ultimate way probably how we can understand and admire the beauty of this country,” said Koenraad Foulon, Participant.

The team’s efforts have paid off as they managed to raise an impressive sum of almost 530,000 US dollars from the walk.

The funds will be used for the construction of a new multi-purpose hall building and to support the school’s operational budget.

“After completing my studies at the institute, I got the opportunity to be a teacher in the same institute. I am happy to have walked along the trail,” said Karma Wangchuk, a teacher at Choki Traditional Art School.

With their mission complete, the European team left for their countries today.

Similarly, the team from Choki Traditional Art School returned to Thimphu with cherished memories and significant funds that will positively impact the lives of their students.
